This biennial Review summarizes much of particle physics. Using data from previous editions, plus 2633 new measurements from 689 papers, we list, evaluate, and average measured properties of gauge bosons, leptons, quarks, mesons, and baryons. We also summarize searches for hypothetical particles such as Higgs bosons, heavy neutrinos, and supersymmetric particles. All the particle properties and search limits are listed in Summary Tables. We also give numerous tables, figures, formulae, and... Topics: Particle Physics, "
Volume 1 This book provides an accessible, practical and comprehensive introduction to the three gauge theories of the 'standard model' of particle physics: quantum electrodynamics (QED), quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and the electroweak theory. For each of them, the authors provide a thorough discussion of the main conceptual points; a detailed exposition of many practical calculations of physical quantities; and a comparison of these quantitative predictions with experimental results. Topic: Particle Physics
Fermi National Accelerator Lab, better known as Fermilab, has been actively searching for the elusive Higgs Boson, the particle that may give mass to the Universe. However, the clock is ticking and their time may soon be up. On this program, Clayton Brown discussed the Atom Smashers.

Understanding the fundamental forces of nature is one of the hallmarks of modern physics. However, mathematically describing these forces often results in the emergence of infinities. On this program, Prof. Frank Close discussed the infinity puzzle. Topics: science, cosmology, particle physics, physics, groks Source: Groks Science Radio Show Podcast

Detailed analyses of WMAP and Planck data can have significant implications for noncyclic pre-Big Bang approaches incorporating a new fundamental scale beyond the Planck scale and, potentially, new ultimate constituents of matter with unconventional basic properties as compared to standard particles. Cosmic-ray experiments at the highest energies can also yield relevant information. Hopefully, future studies will be able to deal with alternatives: i) to standard physics for the structure of the... Topics: Physics, Particle Physics, Cosmology, Pre-Big Bang, space-time

Trillions of subatomic particles called neutrinos are zipping through our bodies every second of every day. If that gave you goosebumps, don't worry because they're very shy and rarely interact with other matter- a property that makes them difficult to detect. Astrophysicist Dr. Ray Jayawardhana joins us today to discuss the hunt for neutrinos, the elusive elementary particle that brings news from distant stars and can help us understand the nature of antimatter. A tall order for a very small... Topics: Groks, neutrinos, Jayawardhana, groks science show, particle physics

It has not yet been elucidated whether the observed flux suppression for ultrahigh energy cosmic rays (UHECR) at energies above 4 x 10E19 eV is a signature of the Greisen-Zatsepin-Kuzmin (GZK) cutoff or a consequence of other phenomena. In both cases, violations of the standard fundamental principles of Physics can be present and play a significant role. They can in particular modify cosmic-ray interactions, propagation or acceleration at very high energy. Thus, in a long-term program, UHECR...

The BICEP2 collaboration reports a B-mode polarization of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation inconsistent with the null hypothesis at a significance of > 5 sigma . This recent and potentially important result is being often interpreted as a signature of primordial gravitational waves from cosmic inflation. However, the arguments supporting such an interpretation are strictly based on standard cosmology and do not take into account possible new phenomena suggested by Planck...

The aim of this course is to develop the machinery to explore the properties of quantum systems with very large or in�nite numbers of degrees of freedom. To represent such systems it is convenient to abandon the language of individual elementary particles and speak about quantum �elds. In this lecture, we will consider the simplest physical example of a free or non-interacting many-particle theory theory which will exemplify the language of classical and quantum �elds. Our starting point... Topics: Physics, Condensed Matter, Particle Physics and Fields, General Theory of Fields and Particles,... Source: http://www.flooved.com/reader/3059
In the past lectures we have considered the properties of a number of �eld theories that describe physical systems isolated from the outside world. However,the only way to investigate the properties of a physical system is to interact withit. Thus, we must consider physical systems which somehow are coupled to theirsurroundings. We will have two situations in mind. In one case, we will look atthe problem of the interaction of states of an isolated system, i.e., a scatteringproblem. In this...
